Mytha Hotel Anthology - International
Mytha Hotel Anthology
Mytha Hotel Anthology is a unique collection of extraordinary properties located in the Mediterranean basin. The group comprises seven hotels in Italy, Spain, Turkey and Croatia and was launched in December 2016 by Doğus Group. Each property is distinctive but they are all are tied together by the eternal spirit of the Mediterranean, by which they are all inspired.
Mytha Hotel Anthology takes its roots from the concept of Myth – from the origins and cradle of civilization. Anthology refers to a collection of writings or poems – this refers to the unique collection of hotels that has been grouped together to create the Mytha Hotel Anthology. The philosophy of the collection, ‘Mediterranean Taste of Time’, encapsulates the blossoming affinity between the flow of moments, seasons and ages of the Mediterranean with the aim to create culturally rich experiences in each destination.
The one-of-a-kind hotels are united by their extraordinary histories as well as their exceptional locations. They all share a strong Mediterranean character and charm and are linked together by their exceptional cuisine – often Michelin starred, spectacular art and design, expert spas using the more innovative products and equipment, exquisite attention to detail and thoughtful, friendly Mediterranean service.
